We have been fielding this question from the moment we established our firm offering peer review services. Peer review is not only involved in the process of journal publication but can be extremely useful for the finalization of your doctoral dissertation. Not every student understands the necessity of getting dissertation peer reviewed. He assumes that unless he aims for publishing his paper, peer review isn’t needed. It is true that no university asks for a dissertation stamped as peer-reviewed, but it is also true that no university accepts a dissertation with inconsistency. So what is this peer review? Does it mean editing? Let us take a closer look at both peer review and editing with these frequently asked questions.


What is the difference between peer review and editing?

In peer review process, any scholarly piece of written work is evaluated by a peer or a subject-matter expert for determining its overall quality, originality, and validity. The writing style, grammar or other aspects of your dissertation are kept under consideration; editing aims to improvise it.

Isn’t the peer review process is followed only by the journals?

No. There is no obligation that only journals include peer review evaluation in the manuscript submission process. The sole purpose of peer review is to upgrade and polish the standard of any written work. Any scholar in any research area can flourish the scope of their paper by receiving feedback from peer reviewers.

Can we consider an editor and peer reviewer same?

No. An editor deals with the aspects of the dissertation development issues such as logic, coherence, presentation, tone, and style of writing. An editor ensures that the researcher’s opinions are best presented with an impact quality of the drafting whereas a peer reviewer, belonging from the same research area, can further advise him regarding the research. Like peer reviewers, an editor cannot advise the researcher of how he would have conducted his research, what research methods would have made a difference or any other suggestions which would help him in developing a good dissertation as well as a conducting a good research.
